Motion in Pocket Format: High performance in the Tightest Space

control system S-DIAS from SIGMATEK for the DIN rail. It combines fast signal processing, comfortable handling as well as high vibration resistance. With the series' versatile motor output stages, dynamic motion sequences can be precisely implemented into reality. For fast and precise position tasks, the modules from the


DC series for synchronous servo motors (BLDC) are the right choice. These servo amplifiers in pocket format are equipped with a standard resolver or incremental encoder input, a +24 V DC output for optional control of a holding brake, as well as a two-channel enable input with which the function Safe Torque Off (SIL 3, Cat. 4, PL e) can also be implemented. With 10 A continuous or 20 A peak current at 48 V, the

new double-module variations DC 101 and DC 102 achieve up to 480 W – and that within a width of only 25 mm without an additional fan module. The single-disc modules DC 061

ighly compact construction and loads of functionality in one system – that is made possible by the flexible

and DC 062 are the right choice for applications with up to 6 A continuous and 12 A peak current at 48 V DC. Simple positioning tasks can be implemented with the SR

011 and SR 012 modules for control and regulation of economic DC brush motors up to 5 A phase current and 10 or 15 A peak current. While the SR 011 is equipped with an integrated brake chopper and switchable incremental encoder, the SR 012 has four digital inputs that can be used as limit switches. Different operating modes are available. The integrated short-circuit proof digital output can be used for brake control or other application-related switching processes in the application. The STO Safety function, according to EN 61800-5-2, is implemented using both enable inputs.

GE introduces a new generation of level controllers with guided microwave: the MFN series sensors

feature an IO-Link interface and thereby enable continuous access of PLCs to process and parameterization data. Using a corresponding master, the level controllers can be connected to any common bus system and conveniently parameterized via PC or notebook. The guided microwave measuring principle ensures high reliability due to its insensitivity to external influences such as temperature, pressure, or density. It provides for precise measurements in liquids such as water, oil, and emulsions as well as in viscous media. MFN sensors stand out due to their particularly short reaction times in case of level changes. Their display units can be configured to show the measured level in mm, cm, inch, liter, or percent. The housings can be rotated by 360° along with integrated LED indicators and control panels, allowing users easy access for configuring the devices and reading measured values.

Active Silicon announces even faster interface boards in its expanded FireBird range


TE Connectivity provides a quick and easy-to-install solution

with the new M12 X-Code Field Installable Cable Plug

IP67-grade 10Gbps Cat6A connections through simplified installation and with optimal performance


E Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, introduces the new IEC 61076-2-109-compliant

M12 X-Code Field Installable Cable Plug. The plug can be fitted without the use of special tools, helping cable installers and machinery makers install IP67 10Gbps Cat6A connections more quickly and easily than ever before. The cable plug comes in just two easy-install parts,

reducing the risk of losing any components during installation in the field. TE’s patented contacting technology enables optimal transmission performance. In addition, time consuming special preparation of the wire lead length is not necessary because the automatic wire cutoff function cuts the wire leads to the optimal length during assembly. Due to the simple design, visual inspection can verify a correct cable-braid termination before final assembly.

ctive Silicon is turbo-charging imaging systems with its new range of FireBird CoaXPress frame grabbers. The 4xCXP-12 acquisition card (PCIe Gen3 x8; CoaXPress v2.0) is the latest addition. With speeds up to 12.5 Gbps

per link, it supports the fastest cameras on the market and allows acquisition of high-speed, high-resolution images in real-time. The board is ideal for single or multi-camera solutions in high-speed applications, such as industrial inspection. Based on a Gen3 PCI Express interface, the new frame grabber uses the ActiveDMA RISC-based engine to guarantee zero CPU intervention, providing high-speed and low-latency image data transfers. Long cable lengths are supported – up to 35m at 12.5 Gbps and 100m at 3.125 Gbps using Belden 1694A cable – or even longer lengths using thicker cables.

For more cost-sensitive projects, the 4xCXP12-3PE4 version offers excellent value and features. Similar in price to

Active Silicon’s well-established CXP-6 quad frame grabber, this board supports CXP-12 for dual applications, as well as quad CXP-6, along with many of the advantages of the 3PE8 board.

Features of the new CoaXPress boards include: • High-speed data, power and camera control all over a single cable.

• Fast PCI Express 4-lane and 8-lane Gen3 interfaces.

• ActiveDMA engine – RISC-based acquisition with zero CPU usage.

• Comprehensive I/O including end panel I/O. • CoaXPress v2.0 support. • Supports PoCXP (Power over CoaXPress). • Micro-BNC connectors. • Standard half-length PCI form-factor. • Full GenICam support (including GenTL Producer).

All Active Silicon frame grabbers come with the easy-to-use, comprehensive ActiveSDK Software Development Kit which

allows integrators to develop applications quickly and effectively, together with a range of third-party software drivers. Active Silicon  01753 650600  
